Mar 22, 2019 · But as long as a saw’s got a good plate and a decent handle it’ll cut–so I’m not too focused on names. There are certainly other good saws that aren’t Disston. Simonds made excellent saws, as well as Atkins. Personally, I’m more interested in the late 1800s saws that were made in Brooklyn, N.Y. I like Harvey Peace saws.
